TriFold Card First Attempt

  I was inspired by so many on the OWH Bunny Hop. I decided to do something I wanted to try for weeks. This will fit into a A2 envelope, though for our heroes, you will need to add a piece of coordinating decorated card stock for them to write on, since there isn't any room within the cuts for writing,

  Spring sure is taking it's time getting here, so I thought I'd make a card with a hummingbird & butterfly, a couple of my favorite things about spring!
  I made this for my MIL. Though we often do not see eye to eye, she is family. She is a Breast Cancer survivor 30+years, but last year got sick with flu and stopped eating. It has been a long road. I made this to cheer her. She loves hummingbirds too!

  The card stock is 'kraft 12x12' from OTC.
The designer paper is from DCWV-Garden Party Matstack.(ACM)
The sentiment & hummer stamp, are SU & embossed w/copper, on a matt of Wausau White Gold.
(I forgot I wanted to ink edges:(

The next shots are inside. I use 3 (cheap) stamps for the inside sentiment. No emboss, cause the cheepies don't work for me that way. I also used 'swissdots' embossing with my rolling pic on the white mats behind DS papers. The main stamp says 'celebrate! Then I added a butterfly & trail.  A dash of gold glitter glue to the spots on butterfly wings & the dot in the ! in celebrate.

Added a pink ribbon, closest I had to match. (need to trim a bit eh?)

OK. trimmed the ribbon, added a bit of bling. Better??

 And that is my 1st attempt at trifold! What do you think? Thanks for looking! Comments & critique appreciated!

Hummer Hugs,
Misty Pin It

Your card is elegant. I just love it. I too love the hummingbirds. My mom passed away when I was 6, she just loved the hummingbirds. I think is why I so love them. Your card is so beautiful and a wonderful job on your first tri-fold card. Can't wait to see more of your projects.
